Fungal ITS database workshop

We held a workshop last for some of the people using and developing tools and databases for fungal molecular ecology in Fungi in (beautiful) Boulder, CO last week as part of our efforts in the Microbiome of the Built Environment. I am working with my co-organizer and participants to prepare a meeting summary and some descriptions of concrete plans forward. We expect this to make it easier to analyze Fungal ITS sequences in tools like QIIME and provide linkage with resources built around phylogenetic analyses of Fungi. An longer meeting summary will be posted in the coming week after we have all the presentations gathered and the details of the meeting written out.
